All Saints, Malborough

Malborough, a Grade 1, 13th Century church, was the subject of a major restoration in 1870. A very active congregation meant the church already had a kitchenette to its north aisle. However, there was a need to further enhance the facilities within the church to allow for flexible use and provide toilet facilities for all visiting.

The construction of a new oak Vestry east of the tower, now forms a multi-use space that can be opened up to form part of the church overall or closed off to allow for more intimate meetings. The area below the tower now houses the new disabled toilets.

A contemporary oak staircase now provides a gallery above, providing a new, more convenient access to the church’s bell rope chamber.

Part of the project involved repositioning the Medieval font within the southern aisle and the removal of the Victorian pews to the north aisle, both providing the main body of the church with a more flexible space.
